Focus on Sentiments - FTTC #89

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC89)! Maki Jones is the challenge host this week. Maki is challenging us to focus on the sentiment. Create a card or project with the sentiment as the main focus. We would love to see what you create.  

I'm all over this one. LOVE sentiments as the focal image and I couldn't wait to use this old favorite: Rejoice. I really LOVE this image. I stamped it on Brilliant Blue with Encore Gold Metallic ink and heat embossed with gold fine detail embossing powder. Then I just layered it up with some gold metallic card stock. So simple, but this image doesn't need a lot to make it shine. The only other thing I did was to tie that gorgeous ribbon around in a bow and add some flat backed gold beads to the holly berries, just to add a little dimension.

Now, be sure to go see how my team mates used sentiments as their focal image!
Thanks for stopping by!
